The QMed Team

From our CEO

At QMed, we continuously explore how we can make things better with our ELearning courses – www.qmedcourses.in

One of the things we explored was the option of a Single Sign On, also known SSO. Several libraries have an SSO tool to allow their students and faculty to access various library resources they subscribe to. This helps in many ways
  1. Library users - do not need to remember several different user ids and passwords
  2. The resource providers – do not need to physically enroll each person. They also need not worry about ineligible users having access – when students or employees leave the organization
  3. The institution and the library feel good about making things easy for their users.
QMed first provided access using the SSO – to Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi. The librarian Ms Indira and the vendors of the SSO – (Knimbus) coordinated with us and helped us make this happen

The next two institutions were AIIMS Bhopal and AIIMS Bathinda – through their SSO – MyLoft. Again the vendors were very helpful.

We hope to do this in more institutions that have an SSO platform and we hope that those who do not have one, will get one soon!

Testimonials for QMedCourses

Course: Information Resources & Literature Searching
This course let me understand that there is a lot in literature searching, that having an internet connection and knowing only the search phrase is not enough for a proper literature search. The teacher taught us very patiently how to properly search medical literature without the condescending attitude. This course should be integrated in the undergraduate MBBS course, since it is a valuable repository of information. Arjun Banerjee, Junior Resident,AIIMS Bibinagar, Telangana

Course: Mastering PubMed
It gives the details of every parameters that are useful for any academic professional. The best thing is that it teaches you from beginner's level to the advance level, also the short MCQ and the wrong answers explanations keep us to remind things that we missed in class. Rohan Shrivastava, Dep of Translation Medicine, AIIMS Bhopal
